February 1 at Cowboy's in Calgary (where staff breast implants are not only encouragted, but paid for by management) there's a "special tribute" to former Stampede Wrestling announcer Ed Whalen...who passed away recently.
Apparently they are having a silent auction featuring rare Stampede memorabilia, archived Stampede shows and whatnot.
Just a heads up for those in the area...check the Calgary Sun for more.
Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?
A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"
You realise Pillman didn't die in the car accident, right? He died over a year later from a heart attack, helped along by the usual wrestler drug lifestyle. It was the first of many more to come. Pillman was so ahead of his time it's unreal.
